Ocoee Number 1 Bridge

BH Photo #186896
Was built around 1910 as an L&N spur line to carry supplies in for the building of the Ocoee Dam and Hydoelectric plant. Used up until the 1949, at which time the coal fired backup plant was taken offline, however, I have seen a locomotive as late as 1954 in an amateur home movie that was filmed there.
